DNEG Spotlight - Building an Animation Pipeline with Katana & RenderMan

About this event

DNEG shares their experience transitioning to a Feature Animation pipeline, which required fundamental changes to how they approached production. With a new focus on narrative storytelling, and prioritizing stylization over photorealism, they will discuss how they implemented a new Katana and RenderMan pipeline to help them with these challenges, optimized for sequence-based animation, and other production efficiencies.
